Final thoughts on the Lions

Another season down the tubes for the Lions. I lost a bet on the season with Nat's step father, whop would have a better record between the Lions and the Rams. Of course when the bet was made neither of us expecting our teams to battle it out for a better draft pick.

The Ram's won their final game, while the Lions couldn't beat the Steelers. Is there any hope for the future with these Lions? I doubt it. I fully expect them to suck next year. Jim Caple on ESPN page 2 has developed a Misery Index for all NFL teams.

Somehow the Lions don't lead the NFL but do hold a high position at 4.

"This is the sort of thing that happens to the Lions -- lineman Erik Andolsek was killed by a drunk driver while mowing his lawn.

That's real tragedy, as was Mike Utley being paralyzed, Chuck Hughes dying of a heart attack during a game, and head coach Don McCafferty dying of a heart attack before a season. But the fact that Detroit has won only one playoff game since 1957 is mostly due to a lot of bad quarterbacks ("And Ty Detmer is picked off again!"), inept management and terrible coaching (here's a hint: the next time you're in sudden death overtime and you win the toss -- take the ball). No wonder Barry Sanders abruptly retired rather than keep losing with the Lions. That was in 1999 and reflected good timing on Sanders' part -- the Lions went from 2000 to 2004 without winning a road game."


What an amzingly depressing team history

Two words: Sad and Pathetic.

I can't believe that nowhere on the ESPN list or this blog or Air Time's blog was there mention of Eddie Murray kicking a playoff game-winner wide against the 49ers.
